Junior UI/UX Developer @ SI
Join the team in Berlin
Our product helps people improve. We provide 700 companies worldwide with a feedback platform so their employees can learn from each other and grow professionally. Pinterest, SoundCloud, Twitch and many more use Small Improvements company-wide — from the intern to the CEO.
We’d love to hire a keen UI/UX developer with a passion for clean design to help us re-imagine major parts of our web application.
Who we are
We’re a team of 20 people on 3 continents and looking to grow. Our product is a feedback platform. Our clients’ staff use it to give and receive feedback about their work, to set goals and objectives and to praise each other for a job well done. (We use it internally too of course.)
What you’ll do
We’re constantly reworking existing functionality and building new features. Join our team of 12 developers & designers as our fifth UI/UX person, and help us make our product truly world class. The job combines design and development:
- Ensure the product looks slick and simple
- Make interactions and flows work like a breeze
- Display the right amount of detail at the right time
- Ensure screens are efficient and self-explanatory
- Make end users rave about our UI to their friends
- Sketch wireframes and create clickable mockups for instance using InVision
- Ensure our HTML and CSS is clean, simple and compliant
- Fix UI bugs and glitches
- Learn about our build process (gulp, webpack) and help improve and tune it
Beyond feature work, you’ll contribute to our styleguide, you’ll stay up to date with broader trends, and you’re available for developers’ ad-hoc questions.
